I would like to give Anne Hillerman another chance but not the narrator!
I, like other reviewers, had the villian figured out half way through book!! Which left later part of book's supense dependent on Leaphorn's outcome & how all the involved agencies would finally figure out 'who dun it'!
Even taking into consideration my bias toward Geo Guidall as narrator of Tony Hillerman's books I absolutely could not get into Delaine's narration!! The navajo female voices all sounded the same and the males feminine. Ugh.
The sister was unredeemable as written and I was left hanging as to her outcome or how 'stooped boy' played into her character.
Prehaps I had too high of hope for this book. Those were mighty big shoes to fill and I really felt Tony himself was having difficulty filling his own shoes the last several books. They just weren't up to the first ones!
Yes, There was so many interesting details that I am sure if I listen again I would learn something new again.
I have never understood how so evil a man as Hitler could rise to power -- after reading/listening to this book I understand now. A lesson to be learned that fragmented political parties can allow such to occur.
The staggering number of human life so blazely taken by the nazis in the Concentration Camps & of the POWs
I am still unbelieving that there are people who believe the Holocaust never happened. Shameful.
As usual Mr Guidall is excellent and kept me listening to this book longer then I probably would have if another narrator was doing this book.
I found disappointment to be the main "spark" -- the answer to the "mystery" was so very anticlimatic.
Probably not. . The first 'read' was enough. Cried and laughed in all the right places.
Lucy. . .she sounds very much like my dog, accepting what comes her way and delirously happy when I return home.
While this is not Shakespeare --- it was a very nice pre-Christmas story to listen to while I sew! Plot might seem implausible to some but it isn't implausibe to any one who has experienced loses/trauma.Happy Holidays!!
